These Vegan One-Pot Recipes Are Easy, Delicious, AND Full Of Cancer-Killing, Inflammation Fighting Power!

loading...

The public has become more aware of where the food on their dinner table came from. This awareness includes awareness of meat and animal products. There are numerous health issues that stem from eating factory farmed animal meat and animal products like eggs and dairy. This could be reason enough to stop consuming it all together. Others cut meat products from their diet for moral reasons. Whatever the case may be, going vegan has always been seen as a lot of work; a huge challenge to undertake. It’s thought that cooking vegan takes more time and energy than cooking with “regular” ingredients. I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t have to be such a challenge. Even if you just want to cut down on animal consumption, here are 17 vegan recipes you can simply cook in one pot.
